Stressed for Success

We all reach our breaking point at some stage of our lives, and workload plays a major role in this.

Workplace stress does not just end at the office, but effects a person after hours even more. For those working remotely this is their biggest nightmare.

It is all one major rush to get things done and the next thing you know, it becomes a snowball of rushing…rushing and just more rushing.

Even when you aren’t working, your brain can not shut the “work thoughts” down, leaving you with a restless night and a tired, overloaded brain the next morning.

We forget to take a step back and have that “Work-Life balance” that we’ve always wanted.

Some days go by and you wonder how you got to where you are?

Will I achieve the actual goal I had coming into this?

Is it all worth it in the end?

I can tell you, that you are not alone and that at some stage we all face this reality as demand and expectations are ever greater than what we have to offer.

Below are a few causes of stress in the workplace:

  • Workload
  • Deadlines
  • Hours of work
  • Skills
  • Job security (Retrenchments)
  • Lack of training
  • Poor communication

Ways we can deal with the causes of stress in the workplace:

  • Prioritize tasks
  • Be confident
  • Have boundaries in place
  • Communicate
  • Suggest good training programs
  • One thing at a time
  • Recharge and switch off

Workplace stress can cause major mental and physical health problems, which could require you to seek medical attention if not dealt with soon enough. As soon as you feel anxious or show signs of stress you need to act in the interest of your own health immediately.
